Apply hard-won disciplines to business

Your athletic background—pro, Olympic, college, or organized at any level—is an advantage. Your mindset and dedication are the building blocks for your next brilliant career. Years of tackling opponents for a loss, breaking the tape ahead of the pack, and turning double plays means you have in you the foundation of my WIN AGAIN playbook. Working closely with you, I’ll help you understand that the special skills you possess are transferable from the sports world to the business world. 

For example:


WIN AGAIN is a practical, step-by-step method for finding and landing your ideal job. You’ll become a five-tool networker and a first-string interviewer—the kind of candidate decision-makers recognize as exactly what they need. You’ll turn strangers into allies, connect with influencers, and chart a course not just for landing today’s dream job, but for a long and rewarding career.

I have 25 years of executive recruiting and coaching, and I will apply all that experience to the skills you developed during your athletic career. That’s an unbeatable combination.


Here are some of the things we will do together:

  • Determine how your on-the-field strengths translate into business capabilities.
